Endless Opinion

A poem written from lived experience, by Julie, an En-Fold mentor/befriender

It wasn't there in my day. It's all a big excuse.
Show them whose boss I say, it isn't child abuse.

Temper tantrums' all it is. So spoiled for all to see.
If I acted like that when I was young I'd be over my father’s knee.

She doesn't look autistic, look she's staring right at me
I am quite the expert, I've met another one you see.

I breathe in such a deep breath, I've heard it all before.
My battles happen every day and I just stare at the floor.
I cannot let this bother me, my daughter needs me more.

Well thank you for your shared advice but it is not needed here.
My daughter is struggling and needs me to hold her near

You really need to learn the facts before you choose to judge
I keep my energy for my kids
I don't have time to hold a grudge

Julie
